Please world, educate yourselves with proven scientific facts not propaganda provided by government-guided MSM and even well-intentioned yet gravely mis-informed media outlets.

TRUTH: #Ebola #Airborne #URGENT #GlobalPandemic 

Scientific studies show Ebola virus can be contracted via shared air or via airborne Ebola pathogens. There is a 90% fatality rate in certain cases. ~ M. Katherine Orts and husband Pastor David A.

Ebola fears: A passenger died at Gatwick after getting off a flight from Sierra Leone

Airport staff tonight told of their fears of an Ebola outbreak after a passenger from Sierra Leone collapsed and died as she got off a plane at Gatwick.

Workers said they were terrified the virus could spread globally through the busy international hub from the West African country which is in the grip of the deadly epidemic.

The woman, said to be 72, became ill on the gangway after she left a Gambia Bird jet with 128 passengers on board.

She died in hospital on Saturday.

The Lie:

The Ebola virus is being presented as a virus which cannot be caught unless one comes into contact with an infected person’s body fluids. This is not true.

BREAKING NEWS Woman Dies At Airport Related Ebola Post: 

2nd Update August 5th 2014:

At the date and time that the authorities told the world that the African woman who vomited on her plane flight out of Sierra Leone and then died at one of England’s airports did NOT test positive for Ebola, they apparently assume we are ignorant idiots and incapable of reasoning and research.

Logic is a Gift from the Lord along with Common Sense (which is not very common.) The test could NOT have possibly been performed on the same day or night that the woman died. The Ebola test takes a minimum of 24 hours.

At the time they told us this good news, we believe simply to pacify the world and prevent public fears, the Ebola test could not have taken place. There was not enough time to conduct the required Ebola tests.

In the USA, even the CDC admits the minimum time it takes to conduct an Ebola test is one to two days, as in the recent NYC Mt Sinai male hospital patient who was admitted with Ebola symptoms:

Testing for Ebola is done at the CDC. According to a CDC spokesperson, testing for Ebola takes one to two days after they receive the samples. -CDC

ObamaCare Not “Law of The Land” ONLY House Can Tax!

ObamaCare.Cartoon_acaonthefritzObamaCare was not written as a tax. Only the House of Representatives in Congress can write a law that creates revenue through a tax, per Article 1 Section 7, of the US Constitution. ObamaCare was presented as a penalty. Thereby rendering it null and void.

We here at PushBackNow.comUSDefenceLeague.com have been effusively attempting to educate the American populace of the factual truth regarding the legality and Constitutionality of: ObamaCare aka The Affordable Care Act. It is NOT in any way, shape or form the “Law of The Land!”


Because ONLY The US House of Congress can initiate a law, a tax law, a bill or a resolution that demands money from the American People. The bill or law cannot be re-written from a penalty to a tax, created after the fact in SCOTUS, in the midst of a Constitutional review in the highest court of the land:  The United States Supreme Court. As powerful of a court as they are, they cannot create, initiate, birth, write, draft, re-write, implement or mandate ANY laws, bills, taxes, resolutions or Constitutional Amendments period. They can ONLY review the Constitutionality of a case before them!

Again, ObamaCare was not written as a tax. Only the House of Representatives in Congress can write a law that creates revenue through a tax. ObamaCare was presented as a penalty, thereby rendering all Executive Branch, Legislative Branch and Judicial Branch offspring, clones, twins and any variations pertaining to ObamaCare aka ACA (Affordable Care Act) null and void. And Here’s proof… One last thing, after you read it, share it, teach it and preach it. This is Truth, and Truth always prevails.

Article 1. Section. 7.

All Bills for raising Revenue shall originate in the House of Representatives; but the Senate may propose or concur with Amendments as on other Bills.

Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States: If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law. But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively. If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.

Every Order, Resolution, or Vote to which the Concurrence of the Senate and House of Representatives may be necessary (except on a question of Adjournment) shall be presented to the President of the United States; and before the Same shall take Effect, shall be approved by him, or being disapproved by him, shall be repassed by two thirds of the Senate and House of Representatives, according to the Rules and Limitations prescribed in the Case of a Bill.

This should be the end of the conversation, but alas the proponents of the anti-ethical and burdensome ObamaCare Socialist One Payer Anti-American dream repeat their false mantra that it is the “law of the land” so deal with it. It is not. You deal with that! Liberals and radical Democrats and, unfortunately even some RINOs, have similar dreams for illegals to be supported by the ‘one-percenters’ and middle-income Americans amidst this great Republic of The United States of America. The Affordable Care Act’s weight will be shouldered by the healthiest and hardest working and doled out indiscriminately. The method of administering ObamaCare via its ‘Marketplace’ is another discussion entirely. And the means, using the IRS The Internal Revenue Service to regulate after such partisan assaults would be laughable if it weren’t so dangerous! The facts are facts and ObamaCare/Affordable Care Act is a reprehensible illegal mandate pushed onto the American people via unauthorized, illegitimate and UN-Constitutional means. It is therefore NULL and VOID. Take that Mr. President, Democratic Congress, RINOs, et al, or, submit yourselves unto the legislative mulch you created and languish thusly by applying ObamaCare to yourselves at once! We The People will stand up against this, and every unlawful mandate and protect our Republic.  Now let’s hear from another Wide Awake Conservative voice. ~-PBN read more

Sheila “Sharia” Jackson Lee Nominated for DHS; Another Democrat Pro Terrorist [VIDEO]

Sheila “Sharia” Jackson Lee is not for freedom as the founders and more importantly God directed, but rather for the dissolution of the most central tenets of the USA, which are, Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of (property) Happiness. Sharia is not “happiness” for anyone but the Imams and men like Imam Obama.

“Sharia” Jackson Lee falsely accuses the people who want to protect life, as the enemy.

As far as women’s rights Jackson Lee is completely misguided and a danger for the health and welfare of all women.

This woman can never be taken seriously for a post at the DHS. -PBN³



FBI Offers $1 Million Reward For Information to Bring Iranian Hostage Robert A. Levinson Home to USA Safely

Former FBI Agent: Robert A. Levinson Needs our help USA.

Robert Levinson Needs our help USA.

March 10th, 2013 marked the 64th birthday and 6th anniversary, of  US citizen Robert “Bob” A. Levinson being held hostage allegedly by Iran.  It is highly likely that Levinson is  currently still being held hostage in Iran, Pakistan or Afghanistan. ” Bob Levinson is now the second-longest-held hostage in American history.  Only Terry Anderson who was held as part of the Lebanon Hostage Crisis was in captivity longer.”  6’4″  formerly 225 pound Levinson, is a former retired FBI agent who specialized in Russian organized crime and served his country and the United States government faithfully.  

Mr. Levinson was last seen March 9, 2007 leaving his hotel in Kish Island, Iran.  He was visiting the Iranian Island while working on a case as a private investigator researching a lead about a criminal cigarette import/export scheme.  

A ‘proof of life’ video was released in December 2011 by Levinson’s family that Levinson was still alive and was still held hostage.  Robert Levinson suffers from diabetes, gout and his health was evidently failing and may be deteriorating further.  The untraceable 54 second video and five photographs were anonymously sent to his family in November 2010.  “Whoever was behind the photos and video was no amateur, U.S. authorities concluded. They made no mistakes, leading investigators to conclude it had to be a professional intelligence service like Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security,” according to the analysis of the US government as reported by the Associated Press January 9, 2013.  

In March, 2011, Secretary of State, Hilary Clinton attempted to get Iran off the hook and stated in an attempt at obtaining the goodwill of Iran in March 2011 that, “Levinson was being held somewhere in South Asia.”  The Levinson family has its own website to help spread the word of their father and husband’s plight.  

The family desperately seeks increased support from the mainstream media and the US Government for immediate resolution in Levinson’s return.  

Mrs. Christine Levinson had appealed to President Obama, former Counter Terrorism Czar and newly appointed (as of today’s Congressional vote 63 yay  34 nay) head of the CIA, John Brennan. There has been, for the past six years now, zero response, updates or success by either Obama, Brennan or Clinton et al.   It is now up to us, USA, to put pressure on Congress and the US State Department to bring this honorable servant of the US Government, United States Citizen, loving husband and father of seven, back home safely to his family.  

The prayers of the United States of America are with you, and your entire family, Mr. Robert “Bob” A. Levinson. -PBN

Note: The FBI has posted reward information and pictures of Mr. Levinson on the Kidnappings & Missing Persons page of the FBI.gov website. We encourage anyone with information regarding Robert Levinson or his captors to contact the FBI at https://tips.fbi.gov. Information will be confidential and can be shared anonymously.

3:00am Gunstory: Do you have ready access? Are you trained in gun safety?

It’s 3:00am. Do You Know Where Your Gun Is?

Imagine it’s 3:00am. It’s late, its dark, you cant sleep or you work late hours and you have stepped outside to check on your cat, your dog, your car, your porch-light, or to smoke a cigarette like the woman in this following true story. Do you own a gun? Do you know where your gun is? Do you have ready access? Are you trained in gun safety, when and how to use deadly force? Be ready. Be prepared. This true report could have ended in tragedy if these two sisters weren’t allowed to own or have a gun.-PBN


The gun was a gift from a friend but it mostly stayed in a side-table drawer, she said, gathering dust. Then, early Sunday morning, Keeney pulled the trigger again — this time, she said, to save her sister’s life.

“I’m very grateful that it fired this morning,” she said Sunday afternoon.

Keeney, 55, said a man forced his way into her apartment in Highland, threw her to the floor and then put her sister, Donna Carlyle, 47, in a choke hold. He demanded money as Carlyle gasped for air.

“All I could see was Donna’s face going blue, like her life was being choked out of her,” said Keeney The alleged intruder, 33, was being treated at a hospital Sunday for two gunshot wounds and was listed in critical condition, police said. They have not released his name. The incident occurred about 3:30 a.m. at an apartment complex in the 2600 block of Eagle Way in Highland. Keeney and Carlyle live next door to each other. Carlyle was visiting her sister’s apartment when the assault happened. Highland Police Chief Terry Bell said Sunday that the man was shot twice and that police were still “piecing it together.” He added that he had no information to believe the man knew the women. Police for now are keeping the gun as evidence.

Keeney said she thought she only shot the man once with her gun, which she described as a five-shot, .22-caliber derringer. The first bullet she fired, she said, was supposed to be a warning shot.

Keeney also said neither she nor her sister knew the intruder.

“I have no idea where he came from or where he was going,” she said.

She had a clue something was wrong on Friday night, she said, when someone was heard going through the complex jiggling door knobs. She took the gun out from the drawer that night and laid it on top of the side table.

On Sunday afternoon, Keeney expressed some remorse but also pointed out that she felt she had no choice but to use the gun.

“I wish I hadn’t shot him,” she said. “I gave him an opportunity to leave. I wish he had left without me having to shoot him. … I hate the idea that I had to pull that trigger.”

Still, she added, “Put in the same situation, I would do it again.”

Some of her neighbors did not second-guess her actions.

“I’m proud of her for shooting that dude,” said Rodney Rusick, 68, who lives a few doors down.

Illinois’ self-defense law allows a homeowner to use deadly force if an intruder breaks in violently, or if the homeowner believes deadly force is the only way to prevent the intruder from committing a felony.

Keeney says she was attacked after stepping outside her apartment to smoke a cigarette.

“As I was closing the door behind me, this really big man pushed his way through the door,” she recalled. “I started pushing back. … He put one arm behind my arm and picked me up and threw me over my couch.”

The man then went behind a recliner, where her sister was sitting, and put Carlyle in a choke hold.

“He had her trapped like a rat,” Keeney said.

Carlyle said she was trying to dial 911 with a cellphone in her left hand while fighting for air with her right hand.

“When he was yanking me up, my feet were in the air,” Carlyle said. “It hurt so bad. I couldn’t lean forward. I could feel the air closing off. I couldn’t breathe at all.”

Keeney said she grabbed the gun — the side table is near the apartment door — and warned the man to let her sister go. He was demanding money, but Keeney said she and her sister both have multiple health problems and support themselves with disability benefits.

“We both were saying we don’t have any money,” she said. “If we would have had any money, we would have given it to him.”

Keeney says she then fired what she thought was a warning shot.

“I told him, ‘I’m going to shoot you if you don’t let her go,’ ” she recalled. “With that, I shot him in the back because he moved from behind the chair. He let her go. He took some steps toward me.”

The man fell to the floor, and Keeney stood over him, waiting for police to arrive.

“I was scared to death that he was going to kill my sister,” she said. “It was dark. He was a huge man, and it was 3-something in the morning.”

One neighbor, Lynn Palenchar, 69, heard the commotion but did not learn what happened until later.

“I was absolutely stunned,” she said. “You don’t expect something like that to happen. I’m just glad both are OK. If he had picked my place over theirs, it would have been a lot worse.”

Senators Stealthfully Seek Gun-sale Background Checks

http://i2.wp.com/fellowshipofminds.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/gun-show.jpg?resize=480%2C364WASHINGTON (AP) — A bipartisan quartet of senators, including two National Rifle Association members and two with “F” ratings from the potent firearms lobby, are quietly trying to find a compromise on expanding the requirement for gun-sale background checks.

Answer our poll question. Should citizens in the United States be banned from possessing semi-automatic weapons and high capacity magazines?

A deal, given a good chance by several participants and lobbyists, could add formidable political momentum to one of the key elements of President Barack Obama’s gun control plan. Currently, background checks are required only for sales by the nation’s 55,000 federally licensed gun dealers, but not for gun show, person-to-person sales or other private transactions.

The senators’ talks have included discussions about ways to encourage states to make more mental health records available to the national system and the types of transactions that might be exempted from background checks, such as sales among relatives or to those who have permits to carry concealed weapons, said people who spoke anonymously because they were not authorized to describe the negotiations publicly.

The private discussions involve liberal Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York, who is the No. 3 Senate Democratic leader; West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin, an NRA member and one of the chamber’s more moderate Democrats; Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., another NRA member and one of the more conservative lawmakers in Congress; and moderate GOP Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois.

“It will not limit your ability to borrow your Uncle Willie’s hunting rifle or share a gun with your friend at a shooting range,” Schumer said last week in one of the senators’ few public remarks about the package the group is seeking. He said he believed a bipartisan deal could be reached.

Polls show that requiring background checks for nearly all gun purchases has more public support than Obama’s proposals to ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines, and it is among those given the best chance of enactment. Even so, it is opposed by the NRA and many congressional Republicans, who consider it intrusive and unworkable for a system they say already has flaws.

“My problem with background checks is you’re never going to get criminals to go through background checks,” Wayne LaPierre, NRA executive vice president, told the Senate Judiciary Committee at its gun control hearing last week.

An agreement among the four senators could help overcome that opposition by opening the door to support from other conservative Republicans besides Coburn. It also could make it easier to win backing from Democratic senators from GOP-leaning states, many of whom face re-election next year and who have been leery of embracing Obama’s proposals.

Schumer and Kirk each have “F” scores from the NRA, while Coburn and Manchin have “A” ratings.

Prompted by the December massacre of 20 first-graders and six adults in Newtown, Conn., the Democratic-led Judiciary Committee plans to write gun control legislation in the next few weeks. The committee’s chairman, Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt., has expressed strong support for universal background checks and it is expected to be a cornerstone of his bill, but a version of that language with bipartisan support could give the entire package a boost.

“If the language is meaningful, it would be obviously a huge step,” said Josh Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, which represents child welfare, religious and other groups favoring gun curbs. “To have someone like Coburn, who’s voted consistently with the gun lobby, to come out and endorse a meaningful background check would be very helpful.”

It is likely that any gun-control bill will need 60 votes to pass the 100-member Senate. Democrats have 55 votes, including two Democratic-leaning independents.

Leaders of the GOP-run House are planning to see what, if anything, the Senate passes before moving on gun legislation. Strategists believe that a measure that passes the Senate with clear bipartisan support could pressure the House to act.

Federal data on gun purchases is gathered by the National Instant Criminal Background Check System, which is run by the FBI.

According to Justice Department estimates, the federal and state governments ran 108 million background checks of firearms sales between 1994 when the requirement became law and 2009. Of those, 1.9 million — almost 2 percent — were denied, usually because would-be purchasers had criminal records.

People legally judged to be “mentally defective” are among those blocked by federal law from firearms purchases. States are supposed to make mental health records available to the federal background check system and receive more generous Justice Department grants if they do, but many provide little or no such data because of privacy concerns or antiquated record-keeping systems.

Coburn got involved in the background check talks about two weeks ago and says a compromise could make it harder for dangerous people to acquire firearms.

“The whole goal is to keep guns out of the hands of the mentally ill and criminals,” he said in a brief interview.

Manchin could be particularly influential with Democrats like Sens. Mark Begich, D-Alaska, and Mark Pryor, D-Ark., who face re-election next year in deeply Republican states. Besides being an NRA member, Manchin ran a campaign ad in 2010 in which he promised to defend West Virginian’s Second Amendment rights to bear arms and “take on” the Obama administration — all while shooting a hole in a copy of a Democratic bill that would have clamped limits on greenhouse gases — another sore spot for a coal-mining state like West Virginia.

In an interview, Manchin said that besides hoping for a background check compromise, he wanted inclusion of a commission that would study “how our culture has gotten so desensitized toward violence.”

Participating senators declined to provide details of the talks. But people following the discussions say the talks have touched on:

—The types of family relatives who would be allowed to give guns to each other without a background check.

—Possibly exempting sales in remote areas.

—Whether to help some veterans who sought treatment for traumatic stress disorder — now often barred from getting firearms — become eligible to do so.

An NRA spokesman, Andrew Arulanandam, declined to comment on the senators’ discussions.

Lawsuit Holds New York’s Illegal Gun Bill Up For Further Scrutiny

ALBANY, New York (Reuters) – Two gun owners have filed a lawsuit seeking to overturn New York state’s sweeping new gun-control law, enacted after the mass shooting at the Sandy Hook elementary school in Connecticut.

The suit, filed on Tuesday in state Supreme Court in Erie County, is apparently the first to challenge the crackdown on firearms championed by Governor Andrew Cuomo.

Attorney James Tresmond, who is representing the gun owners, asked state Supreme Court JusticeDiane Devlin to enjoin the law pending the state’s response.

The law was passed on January 15, making New York the first state to enact tougher gun regulations after a gunman shot dead 20 students and six staff members last month at the Sandy Hook school in Newtown, Connecticut.

The law bans assault weapons and magazines that hold more than seven rounds of ammunition, requires gun owners to register most guns with the state and requires universal background checks, among other provisions.

The law also authorizes law enforcement to confiscate guns owned by a mentally ill person, if a mental health professional believes the person poses a threat to himself or others.

“A number of constitutional rights were just tossed aside here,” Tresmond said on Wednesday.

Under the law, the failure to register a gun is a class E felony. The suit claims that the provision violates the Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination, because it could force a gun owner who registers late to effectively admit to committing a crime.

The U.S. Supreme Court in 1968 ruled in Haynes v. United States that felons and others who are prohibited from possessing guns could not be forced to incriminate themselves through registration.

Tresmond said the law also violates the Fifth Amendment’s ban on the taking of private property by the government. The law requires people who own high-capacity magazines to either sell them or surrender them to the state.

The lawsuit lists as defendants Cuomo, Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, Senate majority leaders Dean Skelos and Jeff Klein, and State Police Superintendent Joseph D’Amico.

At a press conference after the lawsuit was filed on Wednesday, Cuomo, a Democrat, said he expected legal challenges to the new law and that he believed courts would uphold it.

“The more (people) understand the law and the more they hear about the law, the better they are going to feel because it has nothing to do with the legitimate ownership of a gun,” he said.

On Tuesday, the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association filed a notice of claim with the state, which gives the group 90 days to file a suit challenging the gun law. The association, which is the National Rifle Association’s affiliate in New York, said in its filing that the law violates the Second and Fifth amendments, the Commerce Clause and constitutional rights to privacy.

The case is Richard Dywinski v. New York, New York State Supreme Court, Erie County No. 290-2013.

Barack Obama is the Lord of the Flies. Free Bonus: 10 Scripture Refs!

He spoke, and swarms of flies came, and lice in all their borders. Psalms 105:31


The name “Lord of the Flies” is a literal translation of Beelzebub.

The filthy fly, usually found near decaying flesh emitting Putrescine and Cadaverine or frequently landing on defecates chose the chase our own POTUS today as he made two stinking appointments. It isn’t fly weather in D.C., but they have ‘visited’ him before. Where did this fly come from, and why? Seems far more frequent and more unnatural than not.

Flie have a long history of being associated to evil and death.  The fly as a symbol of impurity and temptation, to diverge from the path of righteousness. Flies are well-known carriers of viruses and represent corruption and putridness. And of course the fly is linked with maggots and to the Ten Plagues.

His skill has improved dramatically since his time as a candidate, when he
halted a local news interview because of a swarm gathering around him.

10 Fly References in Scripture

Exodus 8:21 Else, if you will not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies on you, and on your servants, and on your people, and into your houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.

Exodus 8:22 I will set apart in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end you may know that I am Yahweh in the midst of the earth.

Exodus 8:24 Yahweh did so; and there came grievous swarms of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants’ houses: and in all the land of Egypt the land was corrupted by reason of the swarms of flies.

Exodus 8:29 Moses said, “Behold, I go out from you, and I will pray to Yahweh that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, tomorrow; only don’t let Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to Yahweh.”

Exodus 8:31 Yahweh did according to the word of Moses, and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people. There remained not one. (WEB KJV

Psalms 78:45 He sent among them swarms of flies, which devoured them; and frogs, which destroyed them.

Psalms 105:31 He spoke, and swarms of flies came, and lice in all their borders.

Ecclesiastes 10:1 Dead flies cause the oil of the perfumer to send forth an evil odor; so does a little folly outweigh wisdom and honor.

Isaiah 7:18 And it will be in that day that the Lord will make a piping sound for the fly which is in the end of the rivers of Egypt, and for the bee which is in the land of Assyria.

Isaiah 51:6 Let your eyes be lifted up to the heavens, and turned to the earth which is under them: for the heavens will go in flight like smoke, and the earth will become old like a coat, and its people will come to destruction like flys: but my salvation will be for ever, and my righteousness will not come to an end.

Weston CT Seeks Ban on Assault Weapons as Gun Owners Fume


“Remarkably Stupid…” Weston CT Restricts Gun Owner’s Rights. Unconstitutional. Lawsuits Imminent? -PBN


WESTON  – Weston officials recently introduced an ambitious new ordinance to ban the possession of assault weapons and regulate firearms in the town, and the ordinance is catching heat from local gun owners.

Weston First Selectwoman Gayle Weinstein said the ordinance was authored out of frustration with the inaction on gun laws on the national and state level.

“I’m just glad it got the conversation started nationally about the need for stronger gun laws,” Weinstein said.

Weinstein said an existing ordinance, passed in 1990, is in place, and the new regulations aim to strengthen the existing legislation. The new ordinance prohibits the possession and discharge of assault weapons, automatic weapons and any firearm with a detachable magazine that can hold more than ten rounds. It also limits the areas in the town where registered firearms can be discharged and requires gun owners to have a permit, specific to the Town of Weston, approved by the chief of police. Under the new ordinance, gun owners will be required to store their weapon in a locked box.

“It is found that the use of firearms and other weapons in the Town of Weston may endanger the health and safety of the town’s residents,” the proposed ordinance reads, in part. “Accordingly, it is found necessary to the general welfare of the town and its residents that the possession, use and storage of firearms and other weapons in the town be regulated and controlled, so that the health and safety of the town’s residents may be protected.”

Weinstein said the town government is still in the process of fine-tuning the new ordinance. Police found the new licensing regulations “too onerous,” and the licensing requirements will likely be tweaked. A group of lawyers that specialize in constitutional law are also combing through the ordinance, Weinstein said.

The ordinance has met resistance from residents and activists alike. Part of the reason that the new ordinance was met with such resistance is that, unlike resolutions, the new measure directly affects the rights of gun owners, who will be subject to fines if they violate the law.

Richard Burgess, president of Connecticut Carry, a 360-member educational nonprofit dedicated to protecting the 2nd Amendment rights of Connecticut residents, said the proposed Weston ordinance came to his attention via a concerned Westonite.

“It’s definitely out of the ordinary and revolutionary in the sense that it’s remarkably stupid,” said Burgess. “I’ve never heard of town officials being so full of themselves that they think they can do this.”

Six members of Connecticut Carry attended a recent Weston Police Commission meeting, handing out talking points and speaking with residents about the issue. They also plan to attend the Jan. 17 board of selectmen meeting.

Burgess said if Weston officials pass an ordinance limiting the rights of law-abiding gun owners in the town, they can expect a series of costly legal challenges.

“We don’t want to get involved in litigation, because it’s going to bankrupt the town,” he said.

Norwalk, meanwhile, does not look like it will adopt a similar ordinance any time soon. Mayor Richard A. Moccia, a member of the Mayors Against Illegal Guns Coalition, reiterated his stance as a firm believer in 2nd Amendment rights with limitations.

Moccia said change in gun laws must be effected at the state and national level. If the state would allow the city to effect an ordinance at the local level, Moccia said the city would look into it.

“I’m not sure what, under the Home Rule Act, the city is allowed to do,” he said.
